The Department of Computer Engineering was started in the year 1997 with the Post Diploma in Computer Applications Programme and subsequently Diploma in Computer Engineering was started in 1998. Seeing the demand and scope of Computer Application, Diploma in Information Technology has also been added in the year 2003.

The department with the passage of its evolution and growth has succeeded in creating its place by producing quality products that are at par with their mainland counterparts. The Computer Science Engineering Department offers courses leading to Diploma in Computer Engineering, Diploma in Information Technology. The department has taken a leap with the commencement of B.Tech Programme in Computer Science & Engineering from the year 2009. All the programmes have been approved by AICTE.

The department has been covered under ISO Certification since 2001 and the Diploma in Computer Engineering was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), AICTE for 5 years with effect from the year 2002. The Diploma in Computer Engineering has been reaccredited and Diploma in Information Technology has been accredited by NBA for a period of three years in the year 2009. Further the existing ISO standards were upgraded to ISO 9001:2008 in the year 2010. The Department of Computer Engineering with its cohesive team of faculty members, strive to impart practical oriented education.

The curriculum is a blend of the conventional and the radical approaches it is updated regularly to keep it with the growing demands and the changing trends of the software industry and IT sector.
